“Don’t always question the Host. Suffering is an invitation from the Host to draw us nearer to Him. Let’s accept the invite.” – #ToddCPittman
Yep, I Said It!
…and so did Joel 2:25 (NKJV) – (25) So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.
“At one time in our lives, we’ve questioned why God has allowed us to experience grief and pain. What we do during those hard times is very important. Some of us will see the opportunity to draw closer to God and some of us will turn away from Him. But know this, OUR SUFFERING DOES NOT HAPPEN WITHOUT PURPOSE! Our suffering is our opportunity to change who we are. You see, God has this way, this one of a kind ability, to take everything we lost and bring it back double! That ability to take our brokenness and make us new! That ability of RESTORATION! When we are going through stuff God is getting our attention and inviting us closer to Him and we can’t allow our suffering and adversity to block that invite! We’ve got to humble up and allow Him to turn our pain into purpose! So as we battle those addictive enemies, fight our financial battles, and grieve the loss of more than 182,000 of our brothers and sisters due to COVID-19, let’s not let that suffering distance us from Jesus because if we do – that my friend – is when the enemy will win the battle!” – #ToddCPittman
